Hello Amandalewisstark

 

Which payroll are you using Paysuite,Advanced or Standard to set the different weekend rates up in?

 

Thanks

Hi @amandalewisstark,

 

Thank you for your prompt reply. I'll share the steps on how you can add different pay rates for your employees.

 

The first thing we need to do is to enter the additional pay rate.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Highlight the Employees tab.
  2. Select Employees.
  3. Search for an employee you'd like to add a different pay rate and click it.
  4. Under the Actions drop-down menu, choose Additional pay.
  5. Click the + sign beside Pay types ready to add
  6. You'll be provided with different pay types. Choose one and name it as you'd like.
  7. (Optional) You can enter a default rate as well.
  8. Hit Save.

Be advised, any additional pay rates you create will be available to every active employee you have. So there's no need to repeat the steps above for each employee. You simply need to follow up to step 4, then enable the additional pay rate you created by toggling a switch. 

 

Now when you run payroll, the additional pay rates won't appear initially, but you only need to click the Edit link beside the employee. It will show you a page that will allow you to edit how many hours are there for each rate. 

 

See the screenshot below for reference:

Thank you, that is a help. I have followed the steps you outlined and I can now see Saturday and Sunday pay as a choice I can add. Which is great!

 

However, it seems I then need to add an amount, when I want to add the hours.

 

Unlike the basic pay where it knows basic pay is set at say £10/hour. So I add 5 hours basic and it comes up as £50

 

I need to be able to add 5 hours at Saturday pay, say £15/hour and 4 hours at Sunday pay, say £20/hour and for that calculation to be done so it shows £75 and £80 respectively without me having to do the calculations on each employee 

 

At the moment it seems that I will need to calculate each employees hours worked with their 3 different pay rates into a separate spreadsheet so that I know what value to enter into the Saturday and Sunday entries.

 

Is this the case?

Thanks for getting back to us, @amandalewisstark.

 

Since what you've added is a pay type, you need to manually calculate and enter each amount. The ability to have QuickBooks Online (QBO) to automatically calculate it for you is currently unavailable.

 

I'll pass along your suggestion to our Product Developers. They're always looking for ideas to consider on how to improve QBO. In the meantime, I recommend visiting our Blog site. This is where we share recent happenings and future developments, such as updates to newly added features.

 

Just in case, I'll add these articles for future reference:

OK thanks for letting me know that there isn't a feature to do this.

 

It is a shame as this was possible on old version I have just migrated from. I could add 3 x basic payments. All would come up as the same basic pay but I could adjust two of them so I had the three separate rates of pay to each employee all calculated for me. 

 

I would really appreciate it if you could pass my suggestion on to the developers. I cant be the only one who needs the software to calculate different rates of pay for me?

 

many thanks for your help

I've just signed up to Payroll Advance. I can't figure out how i would add Saturday and Sunday different hourly rates.

I also want to know how that would work if i use weekly timesheet to input the hours for projects.

 

I must admit, i'm coming from software called Moneysoft and the hourly rates holiday planner is so much more simpler that with your Advance Payroll.
